At the moment, Dateline isn't set to air any new episodes until at least mid-August, as NBC will be showing coverage of the 2024 Paris Olympic Games, which begin on Friday, July 26 and continue through the closing ceremony on Sunday, August 11.

You can still catch repeats of Dateline on NBC during days when there are no Summer Olympics events airing.

Fans can also stream prior episodes of Dateline on Peacock, which currently has episodes from Seasons 18 through 32 available.

The most recent new episode of Dateline, “The Breakup,” centered on a California nurse who was found murdered on the floor of her garage in Palmdale. The investigation initially focused on victim LaNell Barsock's live-in boyfriend, before detectives realized they were looking at the wrong person.

Another recent episode, “Dark Intentions," highlighted the serial rapist and murderer known as the “Bathtub Killer,” who targeted women in the Dallas–Fort Worth–Arlington area of Texas. “He said, ‘Don’t scream and I won’t kill you,’” surviving victim Chima Benson told Dateline of her horrifying encounter with the rapist.
